QUEENSLAND - SHIPWRECKS - Netspace Shipwrecks off the coast of Queensland, and on the Great Barrier Reef south of Cooktown., Australia.

QUEENSLAND - SHIPWRECKS QUEENSLAND SHIPWRECKS QUEENSLAND SHIPWRECKS including CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN GREAT BARRIER REEF Shipwrecks Set Enter here to bring up frames page with book codes if not already loaded This listing includes those vessels lost off the Queensland coast in the Brisbane River Port Curtis and other relatively protected waters and on the central and southern Great Barrier Reef and Swain Reefs Torres Strait and the Coral Sea and Northern Great Barrier Reef are on separate listings Whereas the marine life of the Great Barrier Reef outclasses the interest in shipwrecks and attracts divers from all over the world there is one vessel that must rate as one of the most interesting and relatively easyily accessed in the world the  3663 ton passenger steamship Yongala lost of Cape Bowling Green in 1911 in 30 to 40 metres A tragic wreck she has in her demise added to the financial coffers of many dive operators who take hundreds to visit the protected wreck each week Most other wrecks along the coast are of primary interest insofar as they are diveable Those wrecked on coral reefs are battered to scattered wreckage You will see nothing of the wooden sailing ships only ballast and scattered coral encrusted fittings Even the steel ships of the 20th cehntury fair little better the 3839 ton passenger Cooma lost in 1926 near Heron Island is such an example flattened and resembling a twodimentional junk yard Those close to the mainland and off Fraser Island and the Stradbroke Islands for example are generally battered and covered in shifting sands Of course none of this is of relevance when it comes to the tragedy of the loss of vessels and human lives and some of the losses have indeed been tragic and fascinating The loss of the brig Stirling Castle on the Swain Reefs in 1836 has been the subject of several books and a film centered on the theme of a white woman Mrs Fraser captured by the aborigines and eventually rescued ReferencesLoney LQ is the base

Government was to use the vessel for the protection of ports and shipping in the confined gulf waters of the state but she saw no action In 1900 she was loaned to the Admiralty for service during the Boxer Rebellion and on the 6 August of that year left for Hong Kong and Shanghai to act as a survey and dispatch vessel After the formation of the Royal Navy in 1911 she continued to be used as a seagoing training ship and then as a tender to the two submarines AE1 and AE2 In company with these two subs she did duty in New Guinea in 1914 and at one time was a guard ship in Rabaul harbour In

Steamship Company with 65 passengers and a crew of 72   Soon after a cyclone swept in from the Coral Sea and after being sighted in the Whitsunday Passage in rising seas the Yongala disappeared Searching for her proved fruitless and in the years that followed the Yongala entered legend as a ghost ship when some fishermen reported seeing a rusty old steamer with similar lines off Bowen In

at the same spot 91m in length and in all probability a fair sized steamer lying on her side in six fathoms surrounded by depths of 12 to 14 fathoms The Navy did not send a diver down but it was generally thought to be the Yongala despite no definite proof Another eleven years passed before the wreck site was in the news again A dispute arose over salvage claims from two divers Bill Kirkpatrick and George Konrat who claimed to have relocated the wreck   Konrat  claims to have identified a wreck as the Yongala by the 13 inch letters clearly seen on the bow which do indeed exist to
